I had forgotten that was the trade...and checking stats bonds only lasted one year in new york...two completely different personalities...nuf ced on that one...

at least murcer made it back...never got to listen to his announcing that much but I have always heard good things...

once thurman began as a starter in 70 I watched a lot of wpix...he kind of became my b-ball hero for a few years...I even had to catch a few years because of it...

so I grew-up in NW PA but our town cable company was very well "connected" and we were able to get WPIX and WOR from like 66 on...probably the only town for a couple of hundred miles around with the two nyc stations, but we had them...outside of being there it was pretty sweet watching for a sport was the yankees and giants (pre-season) on one and then the mets, jets (pre-season), rangers, islanders, nets (aba), and knicks on the other...btw: always loved bill "the big whistle" chadwick doing the rangers...

for some reason I am really hungry for one of those carvel ice cream cakes...maybe a special father's day or fourth of july did that old man carvel have a voice or what???...that guy always cracked me up...

Go figure that Mercer & Scooter both died and old Ralph Kiner is still enjoying cold ones watching the Mets.
